I’m headed to Baltimore for the opening of the Baltimore Summer Antique Show today (follow me on Instagram to for a BTS peek at the action!) so we’re going to have a simple little Thursday post. It’s time to admire some pretty, pretty birds from the one and only Lord Jewelry!
How pretty is this bracelet? So delicate, so perfectly balanced. I love the touch of mixed metals, the warm gold, the careful texture of the tiny text. And we can’t forget that vivid emerald eye. I also love how the bird and the nest are slightly offset, instead of meeting perfectly in the middle.
The pretty little blue eggs in this piece are enameled; if you look closely, you can tell the color is more complex than a simple gemstone would be.
Enamel is Lord Jewelry’s specialty; many of their pieces are completely enameled using the techniques of the old masters. There’s not much enamel in this post; but you can see a spectacular example here.
Here’s another beauty from the same Lord Jewelry collection! These two pieces may be some of the brand’s simplest designs, but they’re still exquisitely lovely.
Lord Jewelry first came to my notice at the AGTA Spectrum Awards Gala, when I met the lovely Lena of Lord Jewelry in the line for the ladies’ room at the gala and her glorious enamel necklace caught my attention. (Ladies’ rooms at jewelry events are major networking hotspots.)
What do you think, my darlings? Can you hear the singing of these pretty birds, too? Which do you love the most: the bracelet or the necklace?
